Since 2008, the London based Ukrainian artist and digital media specialist Mariana Fantich and Dominic Young have collaborated under the name Fantich & Young, juxtaposing and manipulating symbolic ready-made objects such as Jimmy Choo stilettos or Saville Row suits, in order to parallel both natural and social evolution, calling into question the theory of natural selection with nods to ceremonial ritual and the supernatural–a concept they term Darwinian Voodoo.

Taking the “killer shoe” to the next level, Gallery Barrett Barrera with Fantich & Young will be simulating a luxury lifestyle boutique with APEX PREDATOR | DARWINIAN VOODOO in Wynwood during Miami Art Basel (December 7 to 10, 2017).

A conceptual pop-up exhibition employing multimedia sculpture, photographic prints and a promotional advertising campaign to present a primeval yet contemporary collection that merges the creative disciplines of fine art, design and fashion.
